This rum is named and crafted in honor of Dr. Johann Siegart's founding of Angostura house in the city of Angostura, Venezueala in 1824. Angostura 1824 rum production is now based in Trinidad.

Good straight-up sipping. A tad sweet and firey, like other Trinidad offerings. If forced to choose, I'd take a bottle of El Dorado 15 over this, but it's close.
Hand casked, hand drawn and hand bottled (each bottle with a unique number) capped in red wax, this fine spirit is a blend of rums at least twelve years old, re-barreled until matured to perfection, featuring a robust, slightly sweet, spicy, woody flavor with a medium long finish.
Color is a nice Dark Amber. Legs are thin but seem to cling longer than you would expect. The nose is of sweet molasses, vanilla, and butterscotch. The taste is drier than the nose but still has predominate flavors of molasses and vanilla. The oak of the barrel is definitely present. A second sip brings out a bit of leather and tobacco. The finish is a bit hot with lots of spicy notes. Leaves me wanting more. A very complex rum. A keeper for sure.
One if the smoother rums I've had. Just the right amount of slight spice with a shorter finish than expected. Strong brown sugar nose. Woodsy notes with a touch of molasses. Lacks some character and depth, or would have gone to 8 or 9.
